(CHK) Suzuki’s SUV could be underpinned by the same platform used in the XL7. This will be a difficult opponent for Mazda CX-5 and Honda CR-V.

At the time of being sold internationally, the Suzuki Grand Vitara became a popular name for its ruggedness and off-road ability. And according to recent reports appearing on the internet, Suzuki is resurrecting this SUV model and will launch it in the near future. For a long time, rumors about a Grand Vitara model with all-wheel drive configuration have appeared.

Production of the Suzuki Grand Vitara ended in 2018 and now the Vitara midsize SUV serves as the Japanese brand’s top utility offering. Suzuki may see a big gap that the new generation Grand Vitara can fill and therefore the model could be launched as early as next year.

It’s no secret that Suzuki has been working on developing the next-generation S-Cross and Vitara as both make a lot of sense for the brand in the European market. The upcoming Grand Vitara could get a powerful plug-in or hybrid powertrain that can also act as a power-booster while also helping with better fuel economy.

Speculation surrounding an all-new Grand Vitara has been around since 2017 when Andrew Moore, former GM of Suzuki Australia said in an interview that a Vitara-based midsize SUV might be considered. The project has even been previously confirmed by Takanori Suzuki, who is currently the General Manager of Suzuki Europe. The success of the fourth generation Jimny may have prompted Suzuki to release a new generation Grand Vitara.

The Suzuki Grand Vitara can act as a larger-sized replacement for the Jimny, which comes with good off-road capabilities. At launch, the AWD version of the Suzuki Grand Vitara will compete with the Subaru Forester, Mazda CX-5 and Honda CR-V.

The Suzuki Grand Vitara could be underpinned by the same platform as the XL7 or an architecture currently used in the Vitara. While no confirmation has yet been made, we can expect more official details in the coming months.
